Light your man cave, workspace, or cubicle with this LED tea light torch! Hang one in the hallway, and then grab it for a late night trip to the kitchen! Add a cave, castle, or dungeonesque feel to any room with this tiny torch.
The opening is 38mm to accommodate the LED tea lights I purchased from a Hobby Lobby store for $2. You can purchase them online here. A regular tea light wax candle fits, but will drip wax due to the angle. Use at your own risk. I ONLY recommend LED tea lights!
If you make/remix this, please let me know, or leave a comment how yours turned out.

This model was designed to be printed without infill or support. Orientation should be as shown in the pictures to achieve this. I printed the holder with 5% infill, and the torch with zero. You may be able to print the torch in vase mode, but I didn't try it.
